Far (Alternative) Compilation

Recommended Posts

After hundreds of listens to Far I realized I miss those emotional only-Regina-and-piano versions of the songs. So, I compiled this - "Far (Alternative)". I wanted to find the best live performances of the songs but compromise was necessary on some occasions: e.g. my favourite performance of One more time with feeling is the one from Melbourne but there's an unfortunate coughing incident which always startles me even though I know it's there. I had to choose another performance of the song.

Most of the recordings were slightly modified - volume & egualizer adjustments, cutting and noise reduction.

It wasn't meant to be shared but, hey, I figured someone might be interested. Here you go. Enjoy!

1. The Calculation (2009-07-23 Interface)

2. Eet (2009-07-28 KCRW)

3. Blue Lips (2005-04-01 Boston)

4. Folding Chair (2009-06-26 Sirius)

5. Machine (2009-07-28 KCRW)

6. Laughing With (2009-06-09 WRXP)

7. Human of the Year (2008-02-27 Ryman)

8. Dance Anthem of the 80s (2005-04-01 Boston)

9. Genius Next Door (Demo)

10. Wallet (2009-05-27 White Session)

11. One More Time with Feeling (2009-06-19 WNYC)

12. Man of a Thousand Faces (2009-06-19 WNYC)

13. Time is All Around (2005-04-05 White Session)

14. Riot Gear (2009-06-17 Beacon)

15. Carefully Laid Plans (2009-07-24 Apple) -

&
was used, fade in & fade out applied to join the two parts, about 30 or 45secs are missing but it sounds a bit better than the complete version

16. Ink Stains (2009-07-14 Paradiso) - low bitrate

, but I'm very happy how it turned out!

Everything zipped

You're welcome! Let me know what you think; it was breaking my heart to choose just one - especially with blue lips and Dance Anthem Smiler

Well the Blue Lips you chose is my favorite too... And I don't really have a favorite Dance Anthem, (though Bowery Ballroom 2009 is the first one I fell in love with) but your choice was excellent.
